Instructors & Staff

October 12 | Creating a Mentally Healthy Classroom | 1—4 p.m.
University is stressful.  However, there is growing recognition that many structural and contextual factors create unnecessary additional stress for students and instructors/faculty.  This has created a movement to promote healthier campuses in which these factors are minimized in favor of positive classroom environments that help students and instructors/faculty to flourish. Drawing on emerging best practices from B.C.’s province-wide Healthy Campus initiative, our Student Counselling Centre Director and Campus Mental Health Facilitator will discuss how you can begin to incorporate some of these practices into your own courses.
